Amun, oh how I love him. The keeper of Secrets who would stay silent in order not to hurt anyone he loves. Strider--now he pissed me off in this book but that's okay, I have a feeling there is a certain Harpy who's going to bring Mr. Wonderful to his knees.

But let's get back to the main man, Amun. He took on so much when he went into Hell and kept himself apart from the others to avoid hurting them. Of all the women in the world, the one to help him is the one who vowed to destroy him and his friends. And for once the saying "Love conquers all" has never been more true than in this book. I'm glad he has his HEA and that Haidee proved worthy of him.

Zacharael, now there's an action I didn't see coming. Was so mad at him after Amun was cured, Haidee is dead and now he starts letting the truth out. But the moment when he saw Amun devastation and grief and didn't like that feeling I started to get a weird feeling about this angel. To hear Haidee's description of what happened in her cave, well that just blew me away. Now how am I supposed to stay mad at him.

Now time to take a break before starting on the next book in the series. And yes, going to enjoy every minute of Strider trying to fight off Kaia. ( )

this was not anywhere ner my fav of the series. It's actually is my least fav. I still liked it but had to force myself to stay focused on it, I just don't know what was wrong with it but it didn't float my boat that well, but all in all I'm seriously awaiting Stryder's story. ( )

The Darkest Secret
4 Stars

Synopsis
Following his visit to Hell, Amun, Keeper of Secrets, is possessed by malevolent demons that endanger him and those he loves. Enter Haidee, a Hunter sworn to annihilate the Lords, who is the only one capable of quieting the demons. Due to their inexplicable connection and attraction, Haidee and Amun set out on a journey to release the demons and come face to face with an even more malicious adversary.

Review
Not as exciting as previous books. There is no progression in the Hunters vs. Lords war or in the search for the final artifact leading to Pandora's box.

Nevertheless, the romance between Amun and Haidee is sweet - they have definite chemistry and an excellent emotional connection. Their telepathic bond and its explanation as well as their fire & ice dynamic are particularly enjoyable.

Haidee's backstory is intriguing and makes it easier to identify with her and understand her prior actions, although the fact that she is responsible for Baden's death is glossed over too easily.

Unfortunately, Amun is not as well fleshed out. He is the strong/silent type and has largely been ignored in the series thus far, so it would have been nice to get more insight into his personality. The journey through Hell is an entertaining motif, however, for an even better example, I recommend Body of Sin (book #4 in Eve Silver's Otherkin series).

Unfortunately, the other Lords barely put in an appearance and they are sorely missed. Moreover, there are a couple of annoying issues such as Strider's unreciprocated interest in Haidee, which is unnecessary and distracting, and his ridiculous vacation scenes with William and Paris. These had me considering whether or not to skip Strider's book until Kaia turned up to add life to the party, so onwards toward The Secret Surrender. ( )

4 1/2 stars!

Every single time that I finish one of the LOTU books, I keep asking myself why did I take so long to start reading it in the first place?!

I always thought Amun's story was going to be interesting because of the demon that he carries and it was, but Haidee was a treat herself. Strong willed, brave and with some awesome powers, she made this book what it is. Hers and Amun's relationship was something that you immediately start rooting for and that ending was so freaking sad. I was on a emotional high all through the last three chapters! ( )
